Detroit Jazz Festival to celebrate Duke Ellington's work

Posted: Updated:

As one of the most influential musical artists, Duke Ellington made significant contributions to jazz and society, documenting meaningful moments in African American culture.

The Detroit Jazz Festival will celebrate Ellington's impact, presenting his "Black, Brown and Beige" symphony for big band with the first concert of the 2013 Detroit Jazz Festival Community Series on March 10, 2013, at 3 p.m. at The Fillmore, Detroit.

The Detroit Jazz Festival is more than just a one-weekend event, concerts and community initiatives are held throughout the year to celebrate the jazz culture and history. Programs that have continually enriched communities will still be in place in 2013, including JC Heard Jazz Week@Wayne and the Jazz Guardian Award.   

Tickets to the concert range in price from $15 to $35 and can be purchased online at
